A MAN has admitted hacking into the Northern Territory Government’s computer system causing $1m of damage.

Computer engineer David Anthony McIntosh, 28, pleaded guilty in the NT Supreme Court in Darwin today to 12 counts of unlawfully accessing and modifying data on May 8 last year.

His cyber-sabotage crashed multiple government servers, including those of the Health Department, Royal Darwin Hospital, Berrimah Prison and the Supreme Court. [Australian]
